'Throwing Rocks Back Into The Ocean'
Just as the ocean continues to push a seemingly never-ending supply of rocks towards the shore, the World pushes an unquantifiable multitude of visuals towards us. For the artist, these photographic opportunities present themselves in such abundance that choosing one or more to photograph is tantamount to walking up and down the length of a beach and choosing one rock after another to throw into the waves, watching how far it travels, and the impact it creates. We can only take a few rocks at any one time. Something is photographed, and launched back into the world from which it came; having once gone unnoticed it can now be reconsidered. This series of images represents an exploration of these figurative rocks.
